You know, it's a matter of determination for me. Being a published author is a dream come true and so I want to make it the best I possibly can. Motivation isn't too hard because I have characters talking to me in my head and the only way to get them to shut up is to write their stories! Focus is juts part of who I am; I'm a Virgo and about as perfectionistic as can be, so I'm very self-driven. Inspiration is another matter. It comes and it goes. When it's there, it's a high like no drug could ever give. When it's not, I have to force myself to write anyway and hope some of the words are worth saving. That's the only way a book gets written.

“A writer only begins a book. A reader finishes it.”
Samuel Johnson, Works of Samuel Johnson

“Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love.

It did not end well.”
Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone

“Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there's no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.”
Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone

“I don't know many rules to live by,' he'd said. 'But here's one. It's simple. Don't put anything unnecessary into yourself. No poisons or chemicals, no fumes or smoke or alcohol, no sharp objects, no inessential needles--drug or tattoo--and...no inessential penises either.'

'Inessential penises?' Karou had repeated, delighted with the phrase in spite of her grief. 'Is there any such thing as an essential one?'

'When an essential one comes along, you'll know,' he'd replied.”
Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone

“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.”
Robert Fulghum, True Love
